You are one of the directors of the upcoming anthology movie Theatre of the Deranged
- what can
you tell us about the film and your segment in it?
The film is a fun anthology of shorts with this really funny host that
takes us through it all. My film is Cannibal Blood Girl about a murdered
porn star's revenge on crappy guys (and whoever else is around) after her
being killed by passing on HIV. Her "superpower" is a highly
advanced form of überAIDS that basically melts people that she
can shoot out of every orifice of her body. It's kinda funny.
did you/your film become a part of the Theatre of the Deranged-project in the first
place, and what can you tell us about its showrunners James Cullen
Bressack [James Cullen

have actually been a part of the production side of my film Finger Bang
and also my documentary I shot in October, Reanimated Roadkill, about my
band's US tour. James also starred in my film I Was a Teenage Suicide that
I shot back in August.
talk about Cannibal Blood Girl itself for a bit now: What were your
inspirations when writing the movie?
I was talking to one
of the film's stars, Kevin Scott, about if I ever wanted to do a crazy
short. I shot out superaids and he said "no, don't do that!" - days later I told James the story and he
was all "let's do it!"
"cannibal" and "blood" in your film's title alone
suggest lots of gore and violence - so what are we to expect in that
Blood, cannibals, nudity, laughs.
The cannibal film has a long tradition in
exploitation cinema. Are you paying hommage to any of the
cannibal-classics and -not-so-classics in Cannibal
Blood Girl, and your genre favourites?
Honestly, I am
such a fan of how subgenres start, the bandwagon, then the fizzle, that I
love to explore all of them. The Cannibal Boom of the 70's and early 80's
was one of the most riveting genres that came and went so quickly, it just
fills me with excitement. Cannibal Holocaust is one of my favorite films,
one of the first (if not the first) found footage films, and has one of the most
beautiful scores around, and had so much controversy that it is just a
timeless film to me.
How would you
describe your directorial approach to your subject matter?
over thinking anything. This is just a fun, quick short that would make a
really fun feature some day. This film is one of the times that I spent
more on the SFX-look than worrying about other things. So in that respect
it was very different for me.
film stars adult stars Sophie Dee [Sophie
Dee interview - click here] and Veronica Ricci. How and why did you
get them, and what was it like working with them?
I had worked with on Bloody Mary 3D and Finger Bang. She is just really
fun to be around. Sophie worked with James on another film right before
this one. I guess it's nice to work with girls that love the idea of what
you're doing and have a great sense of humor about it.
words about the rest of your cast and crew?
Brain Redban is
the host of the Deathsquad-podcasts and he is a riot. Kevin E.Scott
has been in a
couple of my films. Ivy Pemberton was in I Was a Teenage Suicide and Doug
Waugh is a producer that
works with Kevin a lot and I acted in a film they did called The Video
Feeling lucky ?
any of my partnershops yourself
for more, better results ?

will take you
As far as I
know, Theater of Derange II is in its early development
stages. Will you be, or would you like to be, part of that?
sure yet. I'm sure I'll do something. Lol.
other future projects you'd like to talk about?
There is a
bunch. Lol. But, not sure where to go from it. I just posted some updates
for more info.
website, Facebook, whatever else?
Anything else you are
dying to mention and I have merely forgotten to ask?
We (the band Creepersin) did did the song Cannibal Blood Girl for the film and it
will be on our new EP, Flying Vaginas from Venus Attack Creepersin that
will be out soon for free for a limited time.
